‘Mosman Faces’ is a project to build a visual history of Mosman through filmed interviews and items from our Local History collection. The first series of ‘Mosman Faces’ features ten people who have shaped the Mosman community.
‘Mosman Voices’ makes recorded interviews from the Library’s oral history archives available to listen online. Excerpts are grouped by subject – such as the Second World War, Shops & Shopping, Mosman Musical Society – and can be heard online with an accompanying transcript.
